Celine Dion version[edit]

Dion's version (with heavily revised verses and slightly altered chorus lyrics) was a "leftover" from the recording sessions of the Celine Dion album in 1992, which remained unreleased until 1994. It was offered for various benefit collections, mostly for women’s causes. First it was released on the Kumbaya Album 1994. All proceeds from this CD went to support AIDS awareness and services. It also appeared on the In Between Dances (1995) (of which profits were given to research on breast cancer), The Power of Peace (1996) (to celebrate the 50 years of CARA), and Women for Women, Vol. 2 (1996) (another album to get funds for the research on breast cancer). It was also included as the B-side of the UK single "Pour que tu m'aimes encore" in 1995.

Dion's version was issued in the US in December 1996, as a radio single from the Women for Women, Vol. 2 album, released on September 17, 1996. It peaked at number 23 on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks.
